Israels actions and policies offend and outrage people on a daily basis. As long as this continues, it is not possible for anyone to clean up all the messes and coerce people to be nice to Israel. Israel makes no moves at all to address the issues of their occupation of the west bank, their smashing of international law by building on occupied land, and their avoidcance of peace. Israel inspires hate and distrust and not only among Arabs, but among justice loveing people everywhere. Since Israel is as busy as a bee "isolating" itself in this fashion, why does it fall upon America to comfort and support the tender feelings of the offending Israelis? Are you nuts?
